Forever Mine

Bouquet of flowers placed
on my work bench
satin ribbon tied in a bow
sterling silver and gems
set neatly to the side
a message a thank you note
…you were terrific last night
a heart with an arrow drawn through
offenders artistic camouflage
pinned to the sleeve
of my jean jacket
never forget – insidious memory
he walks behind me leans in
whispers…you look beautiful today
his breath on my neck
inside I recoil outside I am still
a glimpse shadowy images
blur and fade in fade out
– over time
never makes sense
there is no rhythm no rhyme
a nightmare forever mine
…forever mine
